Look! It's finished!

I promise this will be the last post I write about round seven of the Pillow Talk Swap (except to show off the pillow I receive, of course). I finished my partner's pillow over the weekend and I am so pleased with how it turned out!

Except for the binding. That just about did me in. I had to rip out a couple sections and redo them.

I changed my fabric choice for the binding as I was getting ready to make it. The multi Pezzy Print wasn't cutting it. I opted for a solid to help balance out all the different patterns.

I straight-line quilted each piece (front and two back flaps). The front and part of the back features parallel straight lines that measure about 1/4 to 3/8 inches apart.

I also quilted zig zags the same distance apart, along with a decorative wavy stitch on the Washi fabric strip on the back.

On one of the back flaps, I quilted wavy lines with my walking foot.

I'm excited to ship this puppy tomorrow and see what my partner thinks when the pillow arrives at its new home!
